Frequently Asked Questions
What is this all about?
If you're like me, you've always dreamed of being in that big captain's chair and shouting, "fire the torpedoes" or "more power to the shields", I have too, and that's why I built Quintet.

I wanted to make a game were people worked together and communicated with each other. You'll notice a lot of the features are based around getting information from someone else. I've also been a fan of Star Trek since I was a kid and I've been going to conventions for a couple of decades.

What platforms does Quintet work on?
You can play Quintet on Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS and Android devices. All of these different devices can all be on the same ships too!

Do I need 5 people to play?
No. There are ships for 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 players. All the different ships styles can play with or against each other.

How much does it cost?
You can play for hours and hours and not have to pay anything. Some of the missions and features will require a $5 upgrade. The Trio ships, which were originally part of the Kickstarter are available for a $25 donation.
